Esalen Massage is characterized by long sweeping oiled strokes punctuated with deep specific work, passive joint movement and personal connection to create a state of awareness and energized relaxation in the receiver. The emphasis is less on stimulating physiological processes than on creating an environment to inwardly sense one’s body with the able guidance of the massage therapist. This holistic approach joins body to mind and soul. Read more about the Esalen Massage technique.
Somatic Integration is a form of holistic bodywork. The goal is to restructure the whole body and, through touch, enter emotional and spiritual levels. In 12 sessions, the client concentrates on individual body regions and, through the interaction, becomes aware of the whole body. The increased attentiveness resulting from the bodywork improves circulation, stimulates the lymphatic circulation, and leads to finer feeling of the breath and the energy flows of the body.

Since no one client is like the other, I tailor the classic 12 sessions to each client’s specific needs. Pace and depth of the work depend on the specific development process. A session is a sequence of different techniques, but all are not compulsory, for example, to have a complete classic session.
A counseling conversation for your well-being
Who are you? Who do you want to be? Do you want to make a change in your life? What would that be? I’m here to listen and help you explore where you are right now. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, we will work together to create a structured plan for you to change your life in the desired way. I will use bodywork, voice, and movement to discover possible physical, emotional, and cognitive blockages. Playfully, we will discover new ways for you to be happy and present in all aspects of your life.
CranioSacral work is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve holistic health and performance. Using a soft touch, which is generally no greater than 5 grams of pressure, I release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CranioSacral techniques are increasingly used as a preventive health measure for their ability to bolster resistance to disease. They are effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Massage for Pregnant Women
Pregnant women deserve a very special care and attendance. I focus my work on the back, shoulders and neck. And also the legs are worked on to set the blood and energy in motion. I carefully create a very individual massage to support every woman’s need and well-being.
